Welcome news for NHS suppliers….. by Emma Wade

The government has announced that ventilators, coronavirus testing kits and protective clothing arriving from outside the EU are no longer subject to Customs Duty or Import VAT.  This has a number of benefits, it will speed things up, reducing red tape to get vital equipment through to the front line.  It also removes barriers for companies wanting to donate supplies to the NHS.  The import price of these items is also reduced.

This new approach will be in force until 31st July 2020 and new guidance about the import relief is on GOV.UK

Great to see tariffs and barriers removed to keep trade flowing and ensuring the supply of essential goods and services.
